The Bureau of Special Education has developed a two-part process for the monitoring of Individualized Education Program (IEP) compliance,which begins with school district staff being trained to complete a self-assessment of their students' IEPs for compliance with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). The Bureau feels the best way to ensure compliance is to increase school district staff's knowledge and understanding of the federal, state and local statutes, rules and regulations that relate to the development and implementation of students' IEPs to improve educational outcomes for students with disabilities. The second part of the IEP compliance review process involves Bureau staff conducting an on-site file review of school districts' identified evidence for student IEPs to verify that compliance has been met.
The intent of the self-assessment is:
The Bureau of Special Education has compiled a list of practices from the 2013-2014 Special Education Compliance Monitoring Reports that have been found to be noncompliant as well as a list of practices that are compliant but have the potential to become problematic. These lists have been created to help districts identify and rectify any practices that may be found as noncompliant or may become problematic in order to assist in preparing for compliance monitoring visits.
